macOS Services to Find and Open Bible References

I posted this earlier in response to an old thread about iOS, but I figured it could use its own thread.

 

Here are some macOS Automator Workflows that find verse references in selected text, and either open them in Accordance or display the text in a popup dialog. Once downloaded, just double-click to install the services.

 
 
The one named "Accordance-Open References" will:
  1. Find references in the selected text.
  2. Show a selection dialog of references found.
  3. Open Accordance and search the default text for the selected references.
("Accordance-Open References (all)" skips step 2.
 
 
The one named "Accordance-Verse Popup" will:
  1. Find references in the selected text.
  2. Show a selection dialog of references found.
  3. Show a popup dialog with the text of the selected verses.
("Accordance-Verse Popup (all)" skips step 2.
One caveat, the dialog isn't scrollable, so it truncates the results if they are longer than will fit on screen. However, all verses are still there, so you can do a select all in the dialog and copy all verses.
 
As with any Service, you can create keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences for quick activation.
